PUNIC WAR
15mm Campaign Theme Event

Roman and Carthage battle for supremacy, as Hannibal and his polyglot army takes on the might of Rome in a campaign that ranges from Spain through Gaul into Italy and North Africa. This special theme tournament uses campaign-style map movement to generate battle match-ups (four rounds).  Players elect to be on one of three sides:  Carthage, Rome, or Everyone Else.

Strategic rules will be an expansion of those used for the Peloponnesian War Campaign Theme at Fall In, with the addition of simple Supply rules that come into play when a superpower army (Rome/Carthage) is defeated, and a couple of special rules (Carthaginian Elephants lost in battle can only be replaced if the army is campaigning in Africa, for example)

Eligible armies are:
  • II/32 Later Carthage (up to 4 players)
  • II/33 Polybian Roman (up to 4 players)
  • II/8 Campanian, Apulian, Lucanian, or Bruttian (up to one of each)
  • II/9 Syracusan (one player)
  • II/11 Gallic (up to 3 players)
  • II/39 Ancient Spanish (all three versions, no Bd option for Lusitanian) (up to 4 players)
  • II/40 Numidian (up to 2 players)

Some loaners available.

Gamemasters:  David Kuijt and David Schlanger.

11:00 p.m. until exhaustion sets in.

Night (Dawn?) Patrol
